Description:

From prolific, writer, director, producer Tyler Perry, The Haves and the Have Nots is a new television drama that follows the complicated dynamic between the rich and powerful Cryer family and the hired help who work in their opulent mansion set in Savannah, Georgia.

From the outside, the Cryers are the enviable face of success and wealth, but behind the veil the family’s dysfunction threatens to destroy their world of privilege. Cryer family patriarch Jim Cryer (John Schneider) is a powerful judge whose double-life, including tawdry affairs with high-priced escorts, puts his family and political ambitions at risk. His wife, Katheryn Cryer (Renée Lawless), is the ultimate matriarch portraying a loving and dutiful wife, but she is willing to do anything to protect her family’s status. Their son Wyatt (Aaron O’Connell) is a troubled angry jock who cares little for his own image and finds himself in and out of rehab. His sister Amanda (Jacyln Betham), a struggling law student, tries harder to live up to her parents’ expectations, but unknowingly has befriended a scurrilous young woman, Candace Young, with the power to ruin the entire family.

Hanna Young (Crystal Fox) is the Cryer’s maid and the matriarch of her family. Despite having no money, she has found other types of wealth through religion and virtue. She prides herself on her dutiful son Benny (Tyler Lepley), the glue who helps keep the family together. Hanna does have one dark secret, however, her estranged daughter Candace (Tika Sumpter)—a manipulative opportunist who will stop at nothing to get what she wants.

Other characters in the series include the Cryer’s chef Celine (Eva Tamargo), their wealthy friends Veronica (Angela Robinson) and David Harrington (Peter Parros), and son Wyatt’s rehabilitation counselor, Jeffery Harrington (Gavin Houston).

    Tyler Perry, I think you are a talented writer, lots of imagination. I am "pulling " for you. That being said however I was disappointed last night. Please let it be that Amanda has killed herself. She is my least favorite character on the show. Her character is the least believable and poorly acted. Jeffery is just pathetic he needs more, "something". My favorite character is Hanna,please develop her character some more. Love Candace she is street wise as well as intelligent so please give her a life beyond manipulating Jim. Jim is just evil please give him a realistic dose of his own medicine.

      I agree...I hope Amanda killed herself :-). She is not a good actress at all, and (although this is not her fault) her lines are ridiculous. Actually all the Cryers have terrible lines and even worse delivery. I know I sound like I dislike the show, which is not true. I like it, I just wish there was more character development and not such awkwardness between the actors. In my opinion, the only realistic or believable scenes are the ones that include David or Hannah. Oh, and back to Amanda...what ever happened to the professor that she stabbed in the park? Are she and her brother both killers?

    I was VERY disappointed. After waiting with great anticipation for this finale, you mean we have to wait another 5-6 months to get to what we thought we were to see in this finale?! Someone was to die...who was it? I didn't see that happen. Why are we having to wait to see what Candance does to Jim? So we end with him being kidnapped just like the prior season. Come on, Tyler. I thought the finale would be two hours long because all the previews could not have been shown in just an hour.

    I agree with most of the comments. Mr. Perry, you are a much better writer than that! I think you're concentrating on too many shows right now and not giving HAHN the proper amount of writing time it deserves. A cliffhanger should have us writing, calling, emailing, yelling and screaming at you for making us wait 6 months. I truly hope you start the next season with a "bang" and I don't mean with Amanda's gun! You have a great storyline, the best characters and a terrific show. More action is all we need. Thanks. P.S. Please give Jeffrey a backbone next season.

    I tried, I really tried with this show, but I can no longer subject myself to this inferior content. Amanda's transition from simpleton to lunatic was not smooth and not believeable. Please explain how as smart as Candace was, she would opt to meet Jim in a dark park and get herself kidnapped. As shrewd and calculating as she was, that stupid move was not consistent with how she normally handled herself. Not believeable! Hannah... (sigh). This character is the most undignified, loud woman with no sense of decorum. I mean really! Falling out on the ground in court, begging on her knees, not knowing how to act in social settings. I can't with this character. In fact, this is some of the worst writing I have ever seen. I took this off my DVR and will no longer watch this drivel.

    Tyler: let me say I love the show's concept. Last nights show left a lot to be desired. I so agree with the other comments. I believe you to be a talented writer however you are now repeating yourself. Last season you had Candace kidnapped, so why would you end with Jim being kidnapped really. The g** storyline we get it. This seems to be promoted heavily. I admire Veronica for speaking her mind. You made us love Hanna at first now most of us think she is a sad example of what a Christian should be. Candace , character is so unreal. I have no idea what happen to the actors last night. They did not perform well. I know I seen and heard the same lines that were used before with the David and Maggie episode what 2 shows ago. I am rooting for you. There are viewers like myself that pays close attention but when things get to unbelievable we back off. ( Benny storyline for example) he is now super man. Where is the professor, you left him hanging. No one die that we know of. I so knew that we would be right there not knowing. What worries me is will it be a repeat of the professor. Seems that way did we not just do this. I look at this show and have really great ideas. I hope that somehow those ideas will emerge. It is just logical thinking. I am not excited to start the new show. I think I will wait and see if all the loose ends can be put together on this show. Please get other writers to assist you. I am sure this show if handled properly will keep us coming back but if we keep moving in the same directions some of us will jump ship. I am committed to keep watching because I know this is the first of its kind for you and practice makes perfect. Take this six month and get ready to make us eat our words. Best of luck Tyler. Our feedback can only make you work harder. Keep doing what you do.

    Tyler Perry I Am A Big Fan Of The Haves And Have Nots !!!! I Saw The Last One And I Didn't Like The Part Where David Was Drunk And Went Into Maggies Drunk Self Room .. My Advice Of The Next One Is To Let David Go Into Her Room To Talk About Veronica And How To Handle His Situation .. Then Afterwards Let David Go Back To His House And Give Veronica A Piece Of His Mind To Let Her Know How He Feel Then Let Him Tell Veronica That Maggie Has Been Trying To Have Sex With Him So He Wants To Come Home .. Then Let David Ask How Could He Possibility Makw Her Believe Him And Let David Be Crying While He Express Himself !!!! Please Please Please !!!!!!

    I really like this show. It's an addiction for me. Also, I know Tyler Perry isn't a soap writer, but I kinda wish the season finales had a more dramatic turn. For example, maybe Veronica could say to Maggie, 'now you listen to me, LITTLE GIRL. I've dealt with you and now I'm finished, but be warned: much like a rabid dog, the effects of my b*** far outweigh the bruises from my teeth.' And in a drunken state, David and Maggie get into her car only to realize the brakes fail and they go over a bridge. Meanwhile, Celine, Kathryn, Jon, and Amanda are arguing about Celine's son showing up when someone falls off the 5th story balcony they are on. Maybe Quincy decides to get rid of Candace and plants a home made bomb in the house WE THINK is occupied by Candace, Hannah, and Benny when it explodes. Or in a one night stand, Jeffrey finds out he was exposed to the HIV virus. Those are just my thoughts. I really do love the show and can't wait for the return in January!!!!
